House passes $20 million in grants for rural homes

A pair of bills in the Senate would make rural home design more affordable and expand access to new home designs.

The House’s House Design Fund would create $20.4 million for projects aimed at supporting the “first generation of homebuyers and first generation homeowners” and the Rural Home Design and Engineering Program would fund new home design and engineering projects for rural areas.

The programs would also expand the range of types of designs that are eligible for federal assistance, and provide $100 million in assistance to states to “support a new generation of rural homes and commercial construction.”
